Westlawn has served the Chicago Jewish
community for over 80 years.

Westlawn Cemetery was consecrated in 1937. Since that time, over 50,000 people have been laid to rest here. Large oak trees scattered throughout the grounds provide shade from the sun and a connection with the serenity of nature. There is space here for memories and roots to deepen. For generations of families, Westlawn has been a special place to come together and honor their loved ones.

In 2004, Westlawn’s Mausoleum was completed, providing a unique environment for families to pay their respects. When the time comes to honor a loved one, there are many options to consider:

  • In-ground burial
  • Monument selection
  • Floral packages
  • Cremation
  • Mausoleum

We’ll explain the options and help you plan.
